You can get a 7" and a 12" (much more important than a smaller square for most) for about the same price. The only reason I'm kind of interested in the Milwaukee is it scribes in 1/8".

I've never liked these cheap thin Swansons. They don't hold up well.

Been watching these - normally the 7" square by itself is $15. Not sure how useful the 4" is (inappropriate joke withheld), but getting it as a free throw in seems nice.

I really wish this was available in stores, so I could check the squareness/straightness of each item before choosing the best one to buy.
These are available in the stores, there part of the promo deals they put in the cardboard displays down the middle of the isle in the front of the store. You won't be able to check for square though, they are blister packed and aside the use of a carpenters knife you will not be able to open them to check. Rest assured though, they are square, I bought this in the store in Northbrook (Chicago land) last week and there both square. The fit and finish of these far exceed Swanson squares, which I have a dozen or so of. And the visibility for older carpenters like myself, the white on red, is nice. The final sales point, MADE IN THE USA.

Like was mentioned here the bigger of the 2 squares is normally $15, the smaller square is $10. Your saving $10 for buying the promo. Are they worth $25, not in my opinion, for $15 yes, if you use them on the job like I do.

considering the alternatives on amazon, its a good deal. i like that its not gray like swanson. the color stands out, so its easy to spot...gray not so much. also white text on red is easier to read than black text on dark gray. wont be using it on the job, but will be using it for many many renovations and projects around the house.

This could be sarcasm, but just in case...I did buy it in store at this same price a few days ago (33024).
It is actually a big deal for some uses. Cutting 2x boards for framing is no big deal. But you could use these squares to line up your jointer, table saw or other tools when building furniture. At that point if they are off 1/64" or even 1/128" it can / will throw your joints way off. They sell "engineer squares" for big money $50 - $100+ that are certified to be square within tiny tolerances.




Master Precision Square is the finest precision-checking non-graduated square with accuracy to .0001" (0.0025mm) every 6" (150mm). Only $403.00.

Yes, but these are intended for "Cutting 2x boards for framing", for which they should be plenty accurate. No one purchasing a $15 rough construction oriented square should be expecting machinist square accuracy.

And while you can find cheaper rafter squares that may do the same job with similar accuracy, better constructed squares like these are much nicer to use.

I have seen these be off as much as 1/16" - 1/8" off the shelf. For many people this is the only square they have and it is used square up your table saw fence, miter saw, etc. So while 1/16" is not much over 6 inches, it can get amplified when using it on something like a table saw or miter saw fence that is 2' - 3' long. It can get frustrating when you project is not lining up.

So yes my point is the original poster who said he would rather buy one in store to make sure it was square was not sarcasm. Some people pay hundreds of dollars for accuracy. Getting one of these as accurate as possible is important so you can limit your aggravation on future years of projects to come.
